Head bolt Torque Emergency

On the way to work today my '73 GT started emitting large amounts of white 
smoke from the tailpipe.  I had to stop halfway to work to add a gallon of 
coolant.  I managed to limp into work.  I'm going to try to get it home,  I'm 
thinking blown head gasket or worse but I figure it is worth a try retorquing 
the heads before I head home.  Fortunately I have tools in the car and access 
to a torque wrench but I do not know the torque spec for the bolts.  Can 
someone tell me what the torque rating of the head bolts are?
